Immortelle

Abigail Giblin


Immortelle
noun [origin: French, fem. of immortal]
1.     any of various plants that retain their colour when dried. Also called: everlasting flower.


Immortelle is part of an ongoing investigation into the relationship between flowers and death within western society. Treated as a taboo topic, there are few conversations about death and limited rituals for mourning. Immortelle explores the cultural desire to restrain and deny natural decay, combined with the transience and fragility of flowers.

This exhibition explores attitudes towards death in contemporary western society through floral installation.
